How Hugger Mugger Gives Back

Hugger Mugger was established in 1986 to help people in their practice of yoga. 35 years later, we still maintain the philosophy that it is important to assist the people in our community. Throughout the years, we have donated our time and products to a number of different charities. A percentage of all online sales is donated to a different organization each quarter. Thank you for the difference you will make when you choose a new Hugger Mugger product.

THIS QUARTER’S NONPROFIT: THE ACLU

In 1920, a committee of idealists (including Helen Keller) decided to start an organization. They named it the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and they had a mission. Their goal was to support to citizens whose constitutional protections had been violated, and they did exactly that.

Over the last 100 years, the ACLU has evolved into a powerful champion of the civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and its amendments. Today, the organization has 1.5 million members, 300 staff attorneys, thousands of volunteer attorneys, and 54 locations nationwide.

The ACLU is officially nonpartisan, provides legal assistance in civil liberties cases, and lobbies for the protection of citizens’ rights. Undoubtedly, they fight for freedom of speech and religion, equal rights for minority groups, privacy rights, the right to due process, and much more. The ability to have a say in our representative government is fundamental to democracy. To assist, ACLU filed 20 lawsuits to help protect voting rights in the 2020 election year.

Protecting the rights of Black and Indigenous people of color (BIPOC) is central to the ACLU’s mission. Their website states, “To create a world where ‘we the people’ truly means all of us, we must dismantle systemic racism and work to repair centuries of harm inflicted on communities of color.”

Hugger Mugger Yoga Products is proud to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the vital work of the ACLU. From October through December, a percentage of our net profits will go to support this organization. Please join us in supporting the inalienable rights of all American citizens.
